This is not my beautiful OS.

My fantastically unstable IBM T42 (which is on it's 3rd, soon to be 4th, life) died a little while ago, no longer booting into Ubuntu. However, it loves to boot into Windows. How do I nuke both? [more inside]

How to boot from a disk image that's been copied to a partition?

I'm trying to boot the Mac OS X Intel installer CD from a hard drive partition (I have no DVD drive). I used dd to write the ISO to /dev/sda6, and I configured grub to boot from it. But grub won't boot it. [more inside]

Norton Ghost question

I have 100GB and 160GB hard drives in my XP computer. I tried using Norton Ghost to move the 100GB info to my latter drive, and it worked but with serious partition errors (windows not booting). I then moved a large amount of data to my 160, the 100 not really having changed. Everything in windows functions, but when I use Partition Magic 8 I get the following error: "Disk 1 appears to have partitions created using a different drive geometry (255h 63s original, 240h 63 current) You should back up...." etcetera. More inside. [more inside]
